Easter

April 3, 2021 – April 4, 2021

San Francisco, CA

Spiced with local humor, Easter in San Francisco definitely stands out in the crowd.  Easter festivities in San Francisco are so far from traditional that it’s much easier to find an extraordinary celebration rather than look for a solemnity. The most classic event must be Union Street’s Annual Easter Parade, and Spring Celebration held on Easter Sunday. It showcases the unique and diverse community of the Bay area featuring roller-blading cows, self-propelled mini-floats, art cars, and sophisticated fashions. Spring celebration incorporates a variety of family activities such as kids’ rides and games, inflatable bounces, a climbing wall, a bubble jump, face painting, a pony ride and a petting zoo, the Easter Bunny, and other costumed characters, and, of course, musical entertainment. While the celebration extends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the parade starts at 2 p.m.
